"House Readies Tuesday Votes on Energy, Water Amendments"

"The House adjourned at 9:24 p.m. [Monday] after debating several more amendments to the 2012 Energy and Water Appropriations Act, and is expected to hold votes on these on Tuesday in the process of wrapping up the bill.

Two amendments were accepted by voice vote. One, from Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.), would cut $6 million from the Department of Energy's energy efficiency and renewable energy. The other, from Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.), would eliminate the department's $200,000 American Home Energy Education Challenge."
